B.P.P. provides the hydrochloric acid and pancreatic enzymes whose insufficient secretion by the body can result in indigestion.

Having consistently poor digestion can produce numerous health problems, including nutrient malabsorption, digestive problems such as gas, bloating, and diarrhea, and vitamin deficiencies. One common reason for having long-term poor digestion can be insufficient secretion of hydrochloric acid and pancreatic enzymes due to factors such as aging, illness, and the overuse of antacids. Individuals who are likely to be low in hydrochloric acid and pancreatic enzyme secretion, and have malabsorption of protein, carbohydrates, and fats, should consider B.P.P.. Unlike many competitive digestive-support products, Thorne's B.P.P. offers pepsin that is undiluted and lactose-free. B.P.P. also provides undiluted pancreatin, which is essential to optimal digestion and the absorption of numerous nutrients, especially fats. Thorne's lactose-free pancreatin has the highest potency and purity possible.

Hydrochloric acid secretion in the stomach does several positive things. It assists protein digestion by activating pepsinogen to pepsin, it renders the stomach sterile against ingested pathogens, it inhibits undesirable overgrowth in the small intestine, and it encourages the flow of bile and pancreatic enzymes. Hydrochloric acid also facilitates the absorption of a number of nutrients, including folate, vitamin B12, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, iron, and some forms of calcium, magnesium, and zinc. The overuse of antacid products can also lead to low levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, which can further inhibit digestion.

Worth it

by Jenelle -

This product is great for digestion issues. If I have a sour stomach from something I ate or need some extra digestive help I take this. I can not take this on an empty stomach or with minimal intake as it will make my stomach upset.

Love this product!

After finding I had practically no stomach acid, my doctor put me on B.P.P. I take two capsules before each meal, along with a digestive enzyme. My daughter is also taking B.P.P.

Great help for me.

B.P.P. was prescribed for me because I had hardly any stomach acid, tested by increasing the pills until I got heartburn. I didn't get heartburn, but a coldness in my throat. That was with 9 capsules. I now am on 2 capsule per meal, and won't be withou

Great digestive!

I was advised to take Pancreatin along with betaine/pepsin for digestive issues. I find that it has helped, and take B.P.P. at every meal.

best enzyme I have ever taken!

It works great! I take it before any meal that is mostly cooked foods so I don't use up all my own enzymes. Better digestion!
